Atacama Crossing - does anyone have any advice?

OtherJames Hipkiss


Hi In March 2013 i will be taking part in the Atacama crossing in Chile, this is a multi stage self supported event where competitors run or walk across 250km of the Atacama desert in 7 days.

The Atacama is the most arid inhospitable desert on earth and the whole race is at an altitude of between 2300-3300m . I am very excited about this event, I've waited all my life to take part in an epic hardcore challenge.

Has anyone out there done this already?

I'm always open to hints and tips .

Many Thanks
